Graduate Catalog 2017/ 2018

Academic Regulations


  1. "W" Grade: Official Withdrawal - without penalty
  1. Under exceptional circumstances approved by the Dean, a student may drop one course from his/her load.  This must be done before half the course has been completed. After that time, no official withdrawal from a course can be made.
  2. Students may officially withdraw from the University by completing the appropriate form in the Registrar's Office.  If done in the first week of the semester, the courses will not be recorded on their transcript.  If done after the first week, grades of "W" will be assigned for all courses.
  3. Students who officially withdraw are NOT guaranteed readmission to the University.  Official withdrawal assures only eligibility to reapply.  If readmitted, the student will be subject to the regulations in effect at the time of readmission. 

2. "WF" Grade:  Unofficial Withdrawal - Failure 

  1. Students who have been excessively absent from a course(s) (see Attendance) are considered to have withdrawn unofficially and will be assigned a grade of WF by the Registrar's Office.
  2. Students who leave the University, but who do not officially withdraw from the University as noted above, will receive WF grades in all courses and thus be dismissed from the University.
